Default According to the the user's manual in my Honda Accord, it has a 17 gallon tank. At 12 gallons,

the E light Does this mean that I have 5 gallons of reserve? It seems like a lot...

The low fuel light normally comes on when the tank is 1/4 to 1/8 full. It doesn't really indicate a reserve... Just a reminder that you need to stop soon to fill the tank.

not if you really think about it. On many interstate highways and toll roads there is a 25 or 30 mile distance between filling stations. So even if you ''accidentally'' miss the next one you still have a chance to get to the next one.

its just a warning to let you know when your getting close. if it told you when you had 1 gallon left you might not be able to make it to a gas station. they call it an idiot light for a reason...

hey sweet girl they just don't want to run out of gas, there are places even in th U.S. that you could drive 100 or more miles and not see a filling station, or be out on the road and accident holds you up for hours creeping along, or get in a snow storm, you get stuck and have to run your heater for hours to keep from freezing to death. your light might go off just before you are completely our some do. women should not let their tanks get much lower than half, just for safety sake.knowledge from an old guy, old guys rule, bacondebaker.
